Set in Northern Ireland during World War II, My Mother and Other Strangers follows the Coyne family and their neighbours as their lives are changed by the arrival of a huge United States Army Air Force in their rural parish. Tonight the series finale airs and it’s perfect for the season. Rose is preoccupied by Dreyfuss’ absence, and Sally worries that the Mistress is not quite herself. The children are excited by the news of a Christmas party at the aerodrome. Meanwhile, Michael receives some bad news – his cousin, Vincent, wants Michael to buy back the licence to the pub which is currently held in Vincent’s name.
